Reviewing Homes For Sale In Troy, IL.

The first place most people start would be in various printed publications
such as Troy newspapers & Troy homes for sale magazines.

The problem I have always had with newspaper ads is they are usually two
weeks behind. Some Real Estate offices have this down to an art, they will
put out a full page ad with color pictures, give a poetic description, no address,
maybe 3 lines of text and the office phone number.

Negotiate An Offer To Buy An Troy Home For Sale

One dictionary says that negotiation is:
"To discuss with a view to reaching an agreement"

Negotiation is the ability to change the opinions of others through
a climate of Favor; instead of Force...

It takes tact, not tyranny, honey, not vinegar... A cool head will get
you ahead... The person with the ego loses.

Some will lie to achieve their goal.
Some will steal to achieve their goal.
Some will terminate your friendship to achieve their goal.

Stay alert to anyone attempting to deceive you.

History Of Troy IL.

In 1819, ten acres of land in southern IL became the future city of Troy. Settler John Jarvis sold the ten acres for $10 per acre to James Riggin and David Hendershott. The community formerly known as Columbia was then mapped out, surveyed, and renamed Troy by James Riggin. Within a year, the village was populated by 120 people, and began a growth which hasn't stopped since.

Troy IL humble beginnings started with just a band mill, storehouse, taverns, and housing. With the addition of a post office in 1833, and the National Road in 1839, Troy would become the first stagecoach stop for travellers to and from St. Louis, 18 miles west of the budding community.
